Revision history[edit]

2012-2016[edit]

The original CRF250L was an evolution of the CRF230L incorporating a de-tuned version of the proven engine from the CBR250R (2011) road motorcycle, a redesigned frame and suspension implementation.

2017[edit]

For the 2017 model year, the CRF250L continued to compete with the other 250cc dual sport motorcycles. The addition of two additional models the CRF250LA (ABS) and the CRF250L Rally.

Along with the Rally, the standard model takes on the following changes; a larger throttle body, new muffler design, revised PGM-FI and airbox, and larger diameter exhaust header. Graphics have also changed to be inline with the new CRF450R MX bike. Inspired by the factory CRF450 Rally machine raced in the Dakar by Team HRC, the CRF250L Rally gets the same updated engine as the standard 250L, but it also gets a larger fuel tank, totally new Dakar-style bodywork, handguards, a floating windscreen, skid plate and even more suspension travel.
